SPURS are reportedly set to battle Juventus and other Prem clubs in the pursuit of Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back Matthias Ginter.
The 28-year-old is out of contract with the Bundesliga side in the summer, and is allowed to speak to clubs outside of Germany regarding his future.

It is thought Spurs are one of the clubs who are keen on the German international, who has 46 caps for his country since his debut in 2014.
The centre-back has also been operated as a defensive midfielder and right-back for Monchengladbach, showcasing a versatility which could appeal to Antonio Conte.
The Italian is known for getting the most out of these kinds of players, noticeably converting the likes of Victor Moses and Ivan Perisic to new roles in title-winning campaigns.
However, the North London side are set to face stiff competition for his services.
Juventus, who have a pair of ageing centre-backs in Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are understood to be keen on Ginter, according to Sky Sports News.
The Italian powerhouse are currently six points off the top of Serie A, and exited the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage at the hands of Villarreal.
Closer to home, Sky Sports News are also reporting Aston Villa and West Ham are watching the World Cup winner.
Steven Gerrard’s side are currently on a four game losing run, however they have more than secured their place in the Premier League since the Liverpool legend’s appointment.
Following a season of multiple big money transfers – including Emi Buendia, Leon Bailey, Lucas Digne and Danny Ings – the Villa board may be willing to back their manager in his first summer transfer window in England as they look to reach the next level.
West Ham on the other hand are enjoying a second consecutive superb season, sitting sixth in the Premier League as well as on the brink of a European semi-final.
However, the Hammers appeared to finally be showing signs of fatigue at last in their 2-0 defeat to Brentford at the weekend.
David Moyes will certainly be looking to add to a thin squad this summer, in order to maintain their challenge on the Prem’s established ‘top six’.
